Underdog Rescue MN – Together we can make a difference!
Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole. – Roger Caras
Not all dogs have an easy start. In fact the majority of the over 900 dogs rescued by Underdog last year started off on the wrong paw through no fault of their own. The generosity of our volunteers, donators and adopters is what has allowed these Underdogs a new chance at life. You – it is because of you that we can continue to completely transform the lives of former breeding dogs. Every penny counts, every volunteer effort counts, every life saved matters.
It’s about the stories
and the volunteer team. These top five
facts may put a paw print on your heart! This Give to the Max
Day, we invite you to give generously to Underdog Rescue as we plan for
additional growth and strategic development in 2017 and beyond.
Did you know? The majority of pups Underdog Rescue is committed to saving get passed over by other rescues? This is typically due to age (too old), sickness/illness (intrinsically high vet bills), etc. Rescuing this level of pup equates to additional resources needed to get each the necessary care. Last year nearly $200,000 was spent on vet bills alone.
Did you know? Underdogs go home with updated vaccinations, microchip, spay/neuter, dental, and with a support volunteer system for the adopters.
Did you know? We pledge to “Do What You Can” together, as a team! Our volunteers consist of foster parents, adoption coordinators, task-oriented volunteers, vet partners, boarding resources, and financial donators.
Did you know? The financial constraints that go into the costs to rescue each pup include: gas, often extensive vet bills, transportation, special hospitalization bills, food while in foster care, basic supplies (leash, harness, collar, dog beds)…and the list goes on. Our adoption events offer an amazing outlet for potential adopters to meet their new furry family member but also require resources.
learning a bit more about us, we hope you will consider donating your time
and/or resources, especially on this special day! We are counting on you - together we will
continue to strive each day to help as many pups as financially possible.
Your support is greatly appreciated!
